    Highlights include Gershwin's operetta 'Blue Monday,' cut from a review show after only one performance; Al Jolson introducing 'Swanee' to his adoring audience; Paul Whiteman, who commissioned 'Rhapsody in Blue,' conducting the original arrangement for piano and band from its debut at Aeolian Hall; Anne Brown, the original Bess, singing /5().

    This CD should be in every music lover's collection. I first heard this recording when I was about 8 years old. Although I've heard versions of "Rhapsody In Blue" and "An American In Paris" by many other artists (including a recording of Gerswhin himself playing the piano on "Rhapsody In Blue"), I've never heard another recording that can touch the performances on this album/5().

    'Rhapsody in Blue' is a breakthrough color in roses and superbly scented besides. The " blooms (petals ) are borne in clusters on a vigorous upright continual blooming plant with lime green foliage that set off the blooms to their best. Makes a good cut flower%(2).

    The Rhapsody’s tempos vary widely, and there is an almost extreme use of rubato in many places throughout. The clearest influence of jazz is the use of blue notes, and the exploration of their half-step relationship plays a key role in the Rhapsody. The use of so-called "vernacular" instruments, such as accordion, banjo, and saxophones in the.

    Gershwin’s original title for it was American Rhapsody. But, by chance, Ira had been to an exhibition of Whistler’s paintings and saw the painter's Nocturne In Blue And Green of the Thames at Chelsea. Why not call the new piece Rhapsody In Blue instead, he suggested. The title would reflect the European and American influences.

    Sep 22,  · The "Gershwin Years" were very exciting times, and the life and career of George --and his brother, Ira--are well captured in this memorable classic, "Rhapsody in Blue." Tackling this subject was a difficult one, and it manages to reveal the composer's exuberance for 7/10(K).
